Following the critical success of BBC’s Planet Earth Sequel that debuted late last year, the broadcasting corporation has shared plans to revive another of their widely popular television shows, Blue Planet.
Sir David Attenborough will return as narrator for the upcoming docu-series, fifteen years after the original series launched in 2001.
“I am truly thrilled to be joining this new exploration of the underwater worlds which cover most of our planet, yet are still its least known,” Attenborough said of the announcement.
The upcoming series will showcase recent technologies that have given filming crew access to animals that have never been seen before, such as suction cameras fitted to the backs of orcas.
“Blue Planet II is taking its cue from these breakthroughs, unveiling unbelievable new places, extraordinary new behaviours and remarkable new creatures. Showing a contemporary portrait of marine life, it will provide a timely reminder that this is a critical moment for the health of the world’s oceans.”
